Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear John and Cathy's Family,
We are terribly saddened to lose Cathy, one of the most wonderful women I have ever met. She cared about everyone, was filled with love, purpose, and fun. She is probably one of the most empathetic people I have ever met. It was a joy to spend time with her and John.
We were delighted when Nana brought her granddaughters to a camping rally so that we got to meet them.

It was always a pleasure to spend time with Cathy at camping rallies. Such a warm and friendly person to sit and chat with. She has been truly missed and thought of many times. May she rest in peace. So very sorry for your loss

Even though I never met Cathy, I feel your loss. It sounds like she had a good life and great family. I lost my wife a year and a half ago, so I can feel what you're going through. May she rest with GOD and always look over you.

Cathy was a true colleague and a real friend to all of us faculty at Tufts. She ran the Dean's Office far more effectively and affectionately than any of the deans themselves could have done. We remember her smile, her gentle wit, and her ever-helpful spirit.
